The first-ever Jewish Comic Con is coming to Congregation Kol Israel in Crown Heights on Nov. 13. Organizer Fabrice Sapolsky wants people to know that it’s not a “Jew-centric comic con.” He tells Colin Mixson of Brooklyn Paper, “This industry was created by Jews for everyone, and we have to keep that message alive.”

The event looks to educate everyone, regardless of their cultural or religious background, on the influence of Jews on the comic book industry.

Fifteen contemporary Jewish comic artists — including “The Red Hook” creator and Carroll Gardens resident Dean Haspiel and veteran New York cartoonist Mort Gerberg — will appear at the St. John’s Place synagogue.

Many of the attending artists are practicing Jews, though some say they can’t tell their mezuzahs from their menorahs.

Sapolsky mentioned that many artists were skeptical of the event at first. Find out why, as well as more details on the first Jewish Comic Con, at Brooklyn Paper.
